Every industry is undergoing a transformation, and data is at the center of this. In order to keep up with the rapid rise of data in the digital world, every organization must manage, protect, and safeguard its data.
To begin with, we need to swiftly explain the difference between SAN and NAS. Storage Area Network (SAN) and Network-Attached Storage (NAS) are techniques for centrally controlling storage and sharing it with several hosts (servers). While SAN may make use of both Ethernet and Fibre Channel, NAS is Ethernet-based. On NAS, which is dedicated file storage, data may be retrieved from a centralized disk capacity by numerous users and a variety of client devices. A typical Ethernet connection is used by users on a local area network (LAN) to access the shared storage. On SAN, which is an interconnected network of storage devices, a shared pool of storage space is offered that may be accessed by several servers or PCs. Storage on the SAN may be accessed by any computer connected to the network as though it were transforming.
